There was $5,000 raised at Clayton and $2,400 raised at Talihina. These fund raisers are pie auctions and dinners supported by volunteers that give up their evenings to help a great cause. This is one of a kind school scholarships program that we know of. There are other educational institutions that are interested in what is going on here in SE Oklahoma. There is a university in Tennessee that has been watching our progress, they are coming to SE Oklahoma to learn who, what, where, how, and why we do what we do. They want to replicate the scholarship program into their own communities. We know of no other program like this in North America where a Bigfoot Organization is leading the path for high school students to further their education by raising money to attend a higher level of education.
There are plans to expand the scholarship program into other schools in SE Oklahoma. Tom Hefner is the President and Founder of the Honobia Bigfoot School Scholarship Fund, he deserves all the credit. Thank You Tom!
